On 28 March 1805 John married Laney Nelson in Greene County, Tennessee. William Davis was one of the Bondsmen on their marriage licence.
In about 1828 the family moved to Mitchell, Indiana. On the way, Timothy and his father John were swimming horses across the White River at Mitchell, Timothy got across but his father drowned. In the boat were David Hixon and Sally Ann Hixon.
In the 1830 census for Lawrence County, Indiana, Laney is listed as Head of the Household, confirming that John must have died before that year. Laney did not remarry, dying on 5 October 1849 in Lawrence County, Indiana as Mrs Laney Hixson, aged 62.
